I took Friday off and got ready for winter: firewood delivery, chimney cleaning, general all-around organizing. Of course now today it’s going to be 80 degrees! Still, it’s fall, so on Saturday night my cooking reflected that: grilled steak with cumin and paprika, maple-glazed carrots and roasted cauliflower. Plus, I baked an apple pie. (I’ll give you the recipe in a bit.)
